HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hundreds of kids from across Hawaii packed the Blaisdell with their very best robots.They competed in the first Lego League Champions. All of them worked for months to build a battery based robot that could pick up loops, knock down walls and were run by a light sensor. The winners this year are the "Blue Punabots," an independent team that is made of students from Punahou and other area schools.

Artists from around the world, converve on the southern Australian town of Frankston to take part in the annual sand sculpting exhibition. 19 sculptors are putting the finishing touches, on 280 truck-loads of sand that were brought in especially for the event. Apart from water, nothing is added to the sand other than some sealant spray on the smaller pieces.

And postmen in South Korea are in the holiday spirit. 40 of them dressed up as Santa and jumped on scooters to deliver gifts and cards to poor children and their families. The Seoul post office says the event started four years ago and continues because they're happy to share some joy with the less fortunate.
